The magazine is rammed with hot metal this month. Where do we even begin?

THE OLD rivalry between Falcon and Commodore may now be a fond memory but Ford and GM have a new stoush building with Mustang and Camaro. To date, we’ve been denied the really heavy hitters in right-hand drive guise but our cover stars this month, the Shelby Mustang GT500 and the Camaro ZL1 are both supercharged, both get monster near 500kW V8s, both feature the steering wheel on the right and are both now available in Australia. We run the rule over the pair of ‘em.

If you prefer a more refined and relaxed way to have fun, BMW’s all-new 3 Series gets put through the road test wringer, first on a three-state epic drive and then against three of its fiercest rivals. Is the 3 Series back on its game or is this a false dawn from Munich? We bring you the definitive verdict.

Ford’s got a major point to prove with its new Endura SUV and we see it punching up against the 2018 COTY winner, the Volvo XC60 and BMW’s massively improved X3. That’s one heck of a welcoming committee.

We take Porsche’s most powerful 911, the GT2 RS off-roading to the roof of Australia, walk you through the stages of vehicle electrification and report from Japan on the Mazda Clinic where old MX-5s are brought back to showroom spec, for a price.

In a worldwide scoop, we bring you the top-secret 2020 Ford Ranger, we see the brutal Alfa Romeo SZ into the Modern Classic section, we’re in New Zealand on Rod Millen’s driveway for the berserk ‘Goodwood of the South’ Leadfoot Festival, we profile GM’s Mark Reuss, chat with Tommi Makinen and Mark Webber and that’s even before we cover the first drives, show you our new long-term McLaren and… well, you get the point.

This mag’s a belter. Don’t let it get by you.
